In 1787, William Bligh, commander of the Bounty, sailed under Captain Cook on a voyage to Tahiti to collect plants of the breadfruit tree, with a view to acclimatizing the species to the West Indies. During their six-month stay on the island, his men became completely demoralized, and on the return voyage mutinied. Yet a resentful crew, coupled with ravaging storms and ruthless savages, proved to be merely stages leading up to the anxiety-charged ordeal to come. Bligh, along with 18 men, was cast adrift in an open boat only 23 feet long, with a small stock of provisions, and without a chart.

His narrative, deeply personal yet objective, documents the voyage and Bligh's relationships to his men, and thereby exposes the oft debated question of what manner of man he really was.

    " I had seen the movies and heard about this event, but what I had never heard was the rest of the story where captain Bligh and half his crew are put on a whaling boat and put to sea. Through his amazing skill they made a 3600 mile trip in that small boat to a safe port. "

    " This is a fictional/non-fictional account of the famous H.M.S. Bounty, her Captain William Bligh, and the mutinous crew led by Fletcher Christian. "

    " i love sea stories, especially true ones. obviously, this is a story told from one perspective only "

    " Excellent. Quite the adventure. Strangely understated. A remarkable achievement. "

    " A captain's log...and it reads like one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marten | 11/28/2013

    " Not a terribly interesting read. Although I was hopeful given the chance to read a first-hand account of the actual story. Non-fiction just did not equal up to the fiction this time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert Saunders | 11/22/2013

    " The recollections of the real life Lt. William Bligh, after and including the mutiny on the Bounty. "

    " This is the original manuscript desribing the events of The Bounty. Now, I would love to read a fictionalized version! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 1/24/2013

    " Sometimes too short and too concise, but still a nice inroduction into the mutiny and it's aspects. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrs. C. | 1/10/2013

    " It is amazing how Hollywood can distort reality. We all "know" Captain Bligh as an ogre and a madman, but this book sets the record straight. Here you will discover the mutineer whose "voice" seems to have influenced Hollywood, but he did have an axe to grind. "

    " Great Adventures and amazing details .. I was really impressed after reading it .. Enjoyed every word "
